Why Not Innovate?
Jordan Cocker is a designer, curator and wellness advocate from the Kiowa Tribe of Oklahoma and the Kingdom of Tonga. Jordan links relational world-views to Indigenous Futurisms. Cocker navigates present day attempts by governments and institutions to silence Indigenous voices. We are the latest version of our ancestors. Engage, make space and meaningfully connect — now is the time for lasting change.
Over the years, Cocker has navigated the intersectionality of Tribal sovereignty and social, political, and historic climates. Her advocacy centers Indigenous ways of knowing and doing. Jordan is a co-founder of the Indigenous 20 Something Project: a movement committed to generational wellbeing.
